When it comes to Hollywood, the most rewarding role has to be fatherhood. No Oscar or magazine cover shoot can replace the rewards and joy of being a father. Just ask any one of the 15 celebs that appear on our list of most adorable dads. They have time and time again demonstrated that their kids are a priority for them.

franchisesmain

As we roll into another summer movie season, we are face another onslaught of sequels, prequels, threequels seventh-quels. (Seriously, is there a good quel name for any edition higher than three?) The summer X-Men marks its seventh entry with X-Men: Days of Future Past, Transformers adds a fourth with Transformers: Age of Extinction, and The Expendables moves into trilogy territory with its third film. Then previous hits, 21 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon, Sin City, Think Like a Man, return with sequels, putting them in position for franchise territory.

While it’s no surprise that studios push franchise films. They are easy money with a guaranteed audience, almost-certain box office win and tons of merchandising buy-ins. However, it’s always a surprise when a film transitions from a standalone project into a series that runs past its concept or believability.
